Course Content (Syllabus)
The module aims at presenting the development and changes in the cultural process by examining particular issues from the fields of Literary theory as well as the field of Cultural studies. It introduces and explains key questions of how culture is produced through the analysis of the views of major thinkers and significant contemporary figures from different disciplines (Pierre Bourdieu, Norbert Elias, etc.). It also deals with a diverse spectrum of theory, such as psychanalysis, critical theory, post-modernism. By analyzing these theories and traits it shows the development and future direction of the cultural phenomena in the Greek society.
